Geschichte der Handschrift

Provenienz
F. 2v informs us the book is a gift to St. Peter's of Köln from Hillinus canonicus Coloniensis, and the book was produced by the monks Burchard and Konrad. Text scribe (including smaller initials) is of the scriptorium of Kloster Seeon, according to Hoffmann, op. cit. p. 410; this scribe of Seeon has been identified as the monk Konrad, and the illustrator as his brother Burchard, monk of Reichenau, whose death is recorded in a Seeon Martyrology-necrology (Kirmeier et al., op. cit. p. 157); previously the ms. had been thought to originate at Reichenau, because of the illustrations; date given according to Hoffmann, loc. cit.
